We propose two different approaches to achieve electrically pumped lasing in photoniccrystal
based membrane-type devices. The first approach concerns a band-edge laser in
an optically thick gold-clad photonic-crystal membrane. The second approach consists of
a gold-clad ridge waveguide terminated with DBR-mirrors that is evanescently coupled
to a passive waveguide. For both devices, a two-dimensional numerical analysis was
performed, including gold absorption losses.
